Happy new year!
After spending almost the whole Christmas at home with feverish children, I love to go outdoors and enjoy the cold winter days that are finally here. It even snowed for the first time so much, that it is time to take in use Finnish pulkka, a local sled, used to move around with kids and to slide. Today it was minus 14 celcius (6.8 fahrenheit) but according the weather forecast the temperature will go down to – 20 celcius degrees (-4 fahrenheit). But hey, it is just a question of proper clothing! In Finland everything still functions: busses run by the schedule, schools are open etc. There is just one exception, when it is below -15 celcius (5 fahrenheit) you don’t need to go skating with school.
